This changes the entire picture;  I'm fine with doing all of the changes 
for 4.1.  All the same, doing that in 4.0 would be a big unexpected 
headache for people who already configured their php.ini files, which would 
suddenly stop working...
When you upgrade a major version, you go through the upgrade notes, 
something which is very common to skip with minor updates.
